ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of some Chrysler dealers that the automobile maker considered ending its partnership with, to dispose of their remaining Chrysler cars by June 9, 2009. One such dealer, Jim Marsh, considered putting his remaining cars into the pool of cars that would be sent to dealers who survived the June 9 cutoff date. A system has been devised by Chrysler, under which it will place leftover inventory with dealerships that will remain open, Chrysler spokeswoman Kathy Graham explained.
